Bonny Doon Beach - Santa Cruz, CA

A few month back, I took a trip to Santa Cruz and the near by city of Davenport in California. I went to several beaches there that other photographers have recommended to me! They were sure very beautiful. Here are some of the photos I took there. I went to Shark Fin Cove, Panther Beach, Bonny Doon Beach and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Some of the photos will be like "mini time lapses". If you wish to view those as a slideshow, just click on any image on this blog post and a slideshow should load.

Today, I have photos from Bonny Doon Beach located in Santa Cruz, CA. Out of all 4 of the beaches I went to, this one was very easy to access as there were no steep hills you have to climb (well this and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk). The photos will include regular scenery, HDR, long exposures, and some flower photos.

Railroad tracks near Bonny Doon Beach. This is the same line I showed you the other day. It pretty much runs right next to the highway.

Driftwood in stream of water. A tunnel I will show you near the end of this blog post has a stream of water flowing out of it leading to the ocean. The water sure was cold!


 A few long exposures and scenery shots I did while on the beach. 


 I zoomed in a bit to get rid of the people that were sunbathing on the beach. Not sure why they were sunbathing because there was no sun that day. :P


A few long exposure and scenery shots I did facing the other side.  

 A regular scenery shot of the beach.

Yellow Sand Verbena (Abronia latifolia

I was not able to identify this flower species. If you know, please comment below. :)

These are all the photos for today. I hope you have enjoyed them. Next time I will have photos from Panther Beach including Hole in the Wall. Please don't forget to share with your friends and family members! Also, if you want to get notifications when I post up more photos, "Like" us on Facebook or follow me on Twitter and Google+.
